Tigers LHP Matthew Boyd set for Sunday start

Detroit Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said starting pitcher Matthew Boyd will avoid the injured list and will likely start Sunday’s home game against the Minnesota Twins.

The left-hander was removed in the second inning of last Thursday’s start because of tendinitis in his left knee.

“We’ll get Boyd on the back end of this rotation,” Hinch said Tuesday on MLB Network Radio. “He’ll start Sunday against the Twins if all things continue to progress. He avoided the injured list. He did miss a start. But the prognosis for him is pretty positive.”

Boyd, 30, would have started Tuesday’s road game against the Boston Red Sox; he threw off a mound on Monday.

“He’s moving great,” Hinch said.

The Tigers left-hander is 2-3 with 24 strikeouts and a 2.27 ERA in six starts covering 35 2/3 innings this season.

A sixth-round pick of the Blue Jays in the 2013 draft, Boyd is 36-57 in seven big-league seasons with a 4.94 ERA.
